Ernest Thesiger (1879-1961) was a star of stage and screen, most notorius for his portrayal of Dr Pretorius in the film 'The Bride of Frankenstein' (1935). After an initial art training at the Slade, his first professional stage appearance was in 'Colonel Smith' (1909) at St James's Theatre 
(The Univerity of Bristol) 

If the dating of this drawing is correct it would make him 32 years old. 

Special thanks to Arthur Saltzman, of Costa Mesa, CA, a friend of the JSS Gallery, for sending me this image in hard copy.
